Hello, first time to the forums. I can usually fix all my computer troubles myself, or with a couple searches, but i'm stumped today.

I've been trying to make more disk space on my netbook, but not matter what i delete the free space does not increase. And yes, I have emptied my recycle bin.

Any ideas what might cause this?
 
Welcome to TF!

How large is your drive? If you are deleting less than 100MB, it will show only 10% (.10) of a GB. It rounds it off to one decimal (32.1GB) You will get a better idea of how much space is on there if you convert the bytes.

1048576 Bytes = 1024 Kilobytes
1024 Kilobyes = 1 MB
1024 MB = 1GB
1024 GB = 1TB

Start>Run>cleanmgr

Try that to clear out some free space.
